Dan at California Yankee posts on the possible movement of 3,000 regular Army soldiers to help end lawlessness in New Orleans. According to an Army official, the Army has put on alert roughly active-duty ground troops from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to be prepared to deploy to New Orleans to help bring security to the flooded city amid looting and lawlessness.

Dan also writes that "Reuters reports the number of National Guard troops under the command of state governors would reach 21,000 by the end of Friday and top 30,000 in the next few days."
